5@5 is a daily, food-related list from chefs, writers, political pundits, musicians, actors, and all manner of opinionated people from around the globe.

When you hear the term "Asian cuisine," what do you think of?

The kicker is: there's no right answer. For some, their mind lingers on the fresh sashimi of Japan. For others, on a steaming bowl of Vietnamese phở.

One thing is for sure: the continent's culinary culture is certainly not summed up by white take-out boxes and fortune cookies - and Danielle Chang, the founder of LUCKYRICE, thinks it's high time to recognize how diverse Asian food really is.

A Kansas company has recalled more than 14,000 pounds of ground beef due to possible E. coli contamination, federal authorities have announced.

The recalled meat, sold in large packages and distributed in numerous states, comes from Creekstone Farms Premium Beef of Arkansas City, Kansas. Some 14,158 pounds of beef, in a handful of varieties, are subject to the recall, the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service said Tuesday in a press release.

A "third-party" inspector - not Creekstone Farms or the USDA - determined the presence of E. coli 0157:H7, according to the federal agency. The USDA classifies the recall as "Class 1," having determined "this is a health hazard situation where there is a reasonable probability that the use of the product will cause serious, adverse health consequences or death."

If photos and posts throughout the food blogosphere are to be taken at face value, every single household in the Western hemisphere is chowing down on porn-perfect Fluffy Ricotta Pancakes (made of course with leftover homemade lemon curd you had languishing in the fridge #duh #winning), Meyer Lemon Pizza with Goat Cheese and Bacon and Quadruple Chocolate Pistachio Cupcakes on the regular.

That's lovely for you. Can I come over? I'll even bring bourbon, 'cause I know even I won't screw that up.

While you're frying up some eggs and bacon, we're cooking up something else: a way to celebrate today's food holiday and the most delicious finds on TV.

What's poppin'? March 10 is National Blueberry Popover Day.

Like a muffin but lighter, a popover is a hollow quick bread made with butter, flour, eggs and milk. The blueberries add a tart, dessert-esque quality to the airy treats.

Similar to the high deflation risk ofsoufflés, you’ll have to resist the urge to pop open your oven until the popovers are done.

What's on TV?
